An Irish man has received a refund of more than €3,000 after he received a Gst refund from a supplier.
The man, who did not wish to be named, was a member of the St Patricks Day Parade, a group of men who go from street to street in Dublin to support the GST.
The group has been distributing the free gas to those in need since May, and this is the first time they have refunded the cash to their members.
The refund was made possible by the generosity of a local businessman.
In a statement to the Irish Times, the company that makes the gas said that “the gas was produced at a plant in the area where the refund was paid for”.
“This was a voluntary donation by the local businessman, and is the only reason that he was able to obtain the gas and refund it,” the statement said.
“The gas was not produced at any of the other gas stations in the vicinity, nor was it delivered to any of these gas stations.”
The gas is available in Ireland for €3.60 per litre, and it is available for a maximum of six months.
The company said it would offer the gas free to those who can prove they are on the Gstaad, which is the public transport system that connects most of Ireland.
“In accordance with local and national law, we do not accept refunds for gas purchased on our website or by email,” the company said.
It is not the first case of Gst refunds in Ireland.
In September, a man received a free Gst gas after receiving a refund for an additional €100.
In November last year, a woman received a €1,000 refund after receiving an additional 50 litres of gas.
